Wheel Alignments in East Tennessee
What is a Wheel Alignment?
Wheel Alignment, also known as tire alignment, is done at the time new tires are installed, and may be checked with your routine tire rotation. Free Service Tire Company delivers top-notch affordable auto repair services in East Tennessee.
Your car leaves the factory with the wheels set at very specific angles, for the best possible handling, road manners and steering response. A hard hit on a pothole or curb, though, can be enough to jolt a wheel out of spec, causing alignment problems.
These are all signs of alignment issues:
- Consistent pull to one side on straight, un-crowned pavement
- Poor "returnability"...wheel doesn't center quickly after rounding a corner
- Steering feels "heavy" or clumsy
- Front tires worn at outside or inside edge
Think about a person who always walks with one foot skewed to the side. In time, that shoe is going to wear differently from the other shoe...and that's like what happens with poor wheel alignment. The tire that's pointed outward or inward (toe-out and toe-in) or tilted in or out at the top (camber) will wear unevenly as it's dragged along by the other tires. It's that skew that causes steering and handling problems, and also leads to more rolling resistance, hurting fuel economy.
Nobody likes driving a car that handles poorly and pulls to one side on the highway constantly. It's more than an annoyance -- it also is costing you money in terms of gas mileage and prematurely-worn-out tires, and tires that wear out due to alignment issues aren't covered under warranty.
At Free Service Tire Company, we've got the latest in alignment equipment and trained alignment techs to bring your car's wheel alignment back into spec again. Don't just put up with a car that drives and handles poorly -- make an appointment with us!
